CONSCRIPTION POINTERS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
^CONSCRIPITON POINTERS. 'cos jjfif theiReferendum vote is carried in the affirmative, compulsory service will be introduced for the duration of the war only. It is not likely that a democratic people like the Australians would tolerate conscription after the war is ' won. The American people would have none of it after the civil war, yet they introduced it in order to win the war. A prominent anti-conscriptionist paper in Brisbane states that 4,000 Australians are on leave daily in j London, and uses that as an argument that our boys at the Front do not require relief. Does the paper in question expect every Australian to remain in the trenches indefinitely ? ?1§For pure, unadulterated hypocrisy, commend us to the anti-conscription members of the Federal Houses. One of them, a few nights back, told his audience that Australia had done as much els Great Britain towards the winning of this war. He described all Australians engaged in production as ' munition makers.' It is significant...
PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES. It was apparent, from the opening of the Referendum campaign, that public advocacy of either conscription, or the right to shirk, would not be all beer and skittles. As usual, thewindy ^brigade were the first to marshall their forces, with the inevitable result. Speakers in favour of conscription were howled down, counted out, and even violently assaulted. When . the anti's went a little too far, and dragged the soldiers into the argument, by applying some very choice terms to those who were opposed to their views, the cold footed crew got it in the neck, and immediately commenced to squeal. In revenge for one or two lively meetings, where their champions were refused a hearing, their partisans ad ministered the K.O. to John Adamson, a man who had the courage to follow the dictates of his conscience, despite strong political pressure. The anti conscriptionists have all along shown that they live in glass houses, yet they will persist in shying lumps ...

AUSTRALIA'S HONOUR. Big " Yes " Meeting at Ipswich. Mr. Robert Wells on the Need for Reinforcements. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
AUSTRALIA'S HONOUR. Big ' Yes ' Meeting at Ipswich. Mr. Robert Wells on the Need for Reinforcements. The Mayor of Ipswich (Aid. T. Smith) presided over a large and enthusiastic meeting at Ipswich on Friday night last, held with the object of furthering the cause of compulsory military service. The Referendum Issue ? ? - ica Mr. Robert Wells delivered a fine address, dealing exclusively with the Referendum issue. He asked, what had the Prime Minister, Mr. Hughes, done, what had he been guilty of, that had brought down the wrath of certain unions upon his head ? He made bold to say that Mr. Hughes had adopted the only measure, had taken the only course that was possible for .a statesman to have taken. He returned from the Motherland and told ?the people of Australia that reinforce ments were necessary, but that as a democrat, he could not take the sole responsibility of deciding such a momen- | tous question. So he went to the people, :and said, ' the decision is in your hands, will y...
NATIONAL IDEALS IN POLITICS. R.S. and P.N. League Neither Labor Nor Liberal. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
NATIONAL IDEALS IN POLITICS. R.S. and P.N. League Neither Labor Nor Liberal. Mr. Robert Wells, General Organising Secretary of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League, delivered a fine speech at the Nundah Shire Hall on Wednesday night. The Chairman of the Toombul Shire Council (Cr. Lancaster) presided .over a. well attended meeting, held under the auspices of the League. Dealing with the aims and objects of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League, Mr. Wells said that the League was neither s Labor nor Liberal in politics. If they were not either, what were they? They were a purely national organisation. They were a body of men who wanted to instil in the minds of the people, of Australia the democratic and national ideals for which they, as returned soldiers, fought. They held that party politics, in Queensland, and in every other part of the Commonwealth, had not been for the good of the country. (Hear, hear.) They held that party politics had been the caus...
WHEN ENGLISH DRINK RHINE WATER THEN—PEACE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
WHEN ENGLISH DRINK RHINE WATER THEN— PEACE. Gerhard Tersteegeri, a wonderful monk and poet, born at Mulheim in 1697, and who died in 1769, made use of many sayings to signify his appre ciation of , God's ways with men and nations. He was heartily revered for his excellent manner of speech and the deep piety of his life. These are a few jlij of his sayings : ' No great cause will | march on with an axe at its head j ' !| ' God is not honoured by the beak of ;ii an eagle, or the horn of battle j ' ' Germans should never revile ; ' J 'When an enemy drinks the Rhine | water, then make peace with that iji enemy. He may drink the wine of the jj nation's blood.' || .iji
THE LIBERTIES OF DEMOCRACY' Are They Worth Fighting For? Mr. Wells at the Albion. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
THE LIBERTIES OF DEMOCRACY' Are They Worth Fighting For ? Mr. Wells at the Albion. ' Are the liberties and privileges for which unionists strove so long to obtain, worth fighting for,' was the burden of the speech of Mr. Robert Wells, General Organising Secretary to the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League, at the Albion Hall, on Wednesday night. The meeting at which he spoke was held under the auspices of the National Referendum Council, and was well attended. Although a small section of the audience consisted of anticon scriptionists, who continually inter jected, Mr. Wells had no difficulty in handling them. In fact, he gave them rather a bad time, and they eventually left the hall in a body, led by the man who was foremost in interjecting, a ?young man who should, or his looks belied his physical condition, be in khaki. The meeting was presided over by the Mayor of the town of Hamilton (Aid. C. W. Campbell.) Mr. Wells, after briefly drawing the attention of the audien...
THE GENTLE-MINDED GERMAN! [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
THE GENTLE-MINDED GERMAN I You now see, proud England, that there still lives a God who can punish and wreck vengeance. Thy hero sank in the storm to expiate thy thousand fold crimes. Only the trump of doom will awaken the bloodhound Kit chener, the terror of mankind. Thou, too, like Kitchener, wilt perish for thy guilt in darkness and in dread . . . . and if God does not permit us to exterminate you just yet, you will, unless you do penance, pronounce, judgment on yourself. — ' Schlesische Zeitung,' Berlin. ▲ ▲▲
NO MORE GERMANS IN RUSSIA [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
NO MORE GERMANS IN RUSSIA Mr. Hamilton Fyfe, an authority on Russian politics,- and a warm friend of the present Minister for Foreign Affairs, has been renewing his frater nisations with leading men in that great Empire. For the first time since the war began he takes the world into his confidence, and unfolds the ghastly truth about the failure of the Russians i to maintain their armies in the field ] with sufficient munitions. It is gener ; ally supposed that the main loss began I | with the blowing up of a great factory I i at Petrograd. While that to some I ' extent was true, it was not all the j j truth. j This is how the situation stood twelve . months ago : — ' Russia was in des ' perate case. I shall never forget the atmosphere of gloom in which we lived for a while after we knew that the arimes were retreating because they had next to no ammunition. Many felt despair. Happily there were stout hearts and ' capable hands among Russia's leaders. Not only among soldiers and off...
TRICKS OF THE SMUGGLING TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
TRICKS OF THE SMUGGLING TRADE. ' Agricultural implements ' figured upon one ship's manifest. All seemed in order till one of the boarding party tapped a plough handle, and started at the metallic ring it gave. In a thrice his knife was out, and the petty officer was scraping. The whole con signment was of copper, a metal of which Germany stands in dire need. It was all up with that skipper and his fine new steamer. . . Then your beamy old Dutch trawler is fishing to-day, and her men throw halibut and cod into the patrol boat, with genial assurance of a good supper for their English friends. Next day, another auxiliary overhauls the same old sea-dog. Only his forewell is now full of fish. The steam-carrier (he tells the boarding officer) visited him yester day, and took off most of his catch. That story ' won't go,' however. 'I must see what you've got forrard there. Out with that fish, Skipper, and be quick about it.' Fuming and blustering old Dutchie shifts his take and reveals — a...
THE SOLDIER'S KISS. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
v v v a THE SOLDIER'S KISS. ?a— (Descriptive of an actual incident on the road to a battery position in Southern Flanders.) Only a dying horse ! Pull off the gear, And slip the needless bit from frothing jaws, Drag it aside there, leave the roadway clear — The battery thunders on with scarce a pause. Prone by the shell-swept highway there it lies With quivering limbs, as fast the life tide fails, Dark films are closing o'er the faithful eyes That mutely plead for aid where none avails. Onward the battery rolls, but one there speeds, Heedless of comrade's voice or burst ing shell, Back to a wounded friend who lonely bleeds Beside the stony highway where it fell, Only a dying horse ! He swiftly kneels Lifts the limp head and hears the shivering sigh, Kisses his friend while down his cheek there steals Sweet Pity's tear : good-bye, old man, good-bye. No honours wait him, medal, badge or star, Though scarce could war a kindlier deed unfold ; He bears within his breast, more precious far...

WHO ARE OUR FRIENDS AND WHO OUR ENEMIES? [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
WHO ARE OUR FRIENDS AND WHO OUR ENEMIES? The Queensland Catholic Club, which is opposite the rooms of the Returned Soldiers and Patriots' National League, had on its balcony yesterday nine young able-bodied men, who to judge by their appearance, are eligible to don khaki. When the dungaree boys passed in the procession, someone on the balcony shouted ' How are you going to vote? ' A few weaklings, very likely members of the Club, who probably were never better off in their lives, shouted ' No !' to the glee of the nine shirkers on the balcony, who received it with loud applause.
WHAT LABOR THOUGHT BEFORE THE WAR. A Contrast. [Newspaper Article] — National Leader — 27 October 1916
WHAT LABOR THOUGHT BEFORE THE WAR. A Contrast. The following is a plank in. the Federal Labor party's platform, a plank which they have since broken in twain : ' War is one of the greatest realities of life, and it must be faced. Our interests and our very existence are bound up with those of the Empire. In time of war, half measures are worse than none. If returned with a majority, we shall pursue, with the utmost vigour and determination, every course neces sary for the defence of the Common- 1 wealth and the Empire in any and every contingency.' The meaning of those words is plain ; the Labor party, and by that is surely meant every section of the party, pledged itself to 'pursue with the utmost vigour and determination every course necessary for the defence of the Commonwealth and the Empire in any and every contingency.' Does the Federal Labor party contend that the supply of rein forcements is not a course necessary for the defence of the Commonwealth and the Empire ? It canno...
